Anyone ever heard of the Bluerunners?

Some very cool jamming...

Check the peddle-steel work here about half-way through...

Anyone know any other electrified Zydeco jam bands?

Or better yet, any zydeco-fied Grateful Dead?

Just a few snippets of Nathan & The Zydeco Cha-Chas at this page (a zydeco band, not a zydeco jam band):

http://www.artistdirect.com/nad/music/artist/card/0,,472235,00.html

Their album I'm a Zydeco Hog: Live at the Rock 'N' Bowl, New Orleans is superb. And don't forget Buckwheat Zydeco-just shy of 60 and going strong.

Zydeco Dead? Well, the closest they really came was Iko-Iko, was it not? Oh yeah, Hey Pocky Way, too, but those are really just New Orleans songs, not zydeco. And Pocky was a Nevilles cover, but not specifically all that much of a bayou/cajun swamp-stomper.

I've been catchin Donna the buffalo shows since 95, if there is one band nowadays that I will travel to see its them. They have got the grooviest vibe I have EVER heard!!! If you have never seen them you are missing out on one of the finer thing in life. I have seen them probably 50 times or so and every time I dance my ass off,I've seen SQUARES startin out with there hands in their pockets and by the end of the first set the shirt comes off and the sweat starts flyin' best show runnin now! I was at the show this audio is from IT WAS SMOKIN!!!!

Hey Cliff!

Being a longtime Clifton Chenier fan, I did an LMA search on his name and came up with these two shows. The first features his son on one track and the second includes a performance of Bon Ton Roulet. I haven't listened to either, but the reviewers love the second.

Can't help you w/ dead, but Richard Thompson (am I annoying?) guested on an album w/ Michael Doucet and Beausoleil that has some nice tunes.

Check out this zydeco version of "Turn On Your Love Light," not a Grateful Dead original, but a live staple.

well...Buckwheat Zydeco...although I'm sure you've heard of him/them. Got to see Stanley Dural and company live once, and they were pretty good. He does a mean cover of the Stones' Beast of Burden and lately he's been on a Marley (and reggae in general) kick.

While not strictly zydeco, Donna the Buffalo is pure Americana - and zydeco is an obvious influence. Tara Nevins plays sweet fiddle, rocks the squeezebox, and can scrub the rub board with masterful aplomb.

The Grassroots festival both in the Finger Lakes (NY)every July and Shakori Hills, NC in April and October are their homecourt. They play multiple sets at each fest and many sets are available here on the Archive. I've seen them many times and it is always a party. They know how to fill a dance floor and there are always toddler, youth, teens, right through to senior citizens kicking it. When you can get a spectrum across the ages like that, you must be doing something right.

If you can check out Keith Frank and the Soileau Zydeco Band, try that on for size.
